We are running this example http://asp.syncfusion.com/demos/reporting/pdf/Import%20and%20Export/HtmlToPdf/VB/Default.aspx
on our webserver. But the quality of the PDF is not good when we run it on our own server. 

I have added FEATURE_IVIEWOBJECTDRAW_DMLT9_WITH_GDI to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\. 

It is a windows 2008 server. It is a 64 bit server, but the site is running 32, so I also added FEATURE_IVIEWOBJECTDRAW_DMLT9_WITH_GDI to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\
IE9 is installed, and I have disabled "Safe browsing"

But it still seems like that it only can to Bitmap. 

I have attached the PDF it generates, even then I select "Metafile"

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

As per the MSDN, the FEATURE_IVIEWOBJECTDRAW_DMLT9_WITH_GDI value should be set at in following setting:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SOFTWARE->Microsoft->Internet Explorer->Main->FeatureControl
HKEY_CURRENT_USER->SOFTWARE->Microsoft->Internet Explorer->Main->FeatureControl

Could you please try to set the registry in both HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER and let me know if you still reproduce the problem?

You can get more details on this from the following MSDN link:
